Finebaum on UA v. Daniel Moore

Paul Finebaum lashes out against the University of Alabama in Tuesday's Mobile Register, saying that in its lawsuit against artist Daniel Moore, the University has turned the Hippocratic Oath ("First, do no harm") into the "Hypocritical Oath".
Most pundits agree that if there were a legitimate lawsuit to be filed, it should have been Moore suing Alabama, claiming he has been unable to make a living doing artwork about Alabama since the school has enjoyed only two bowl wins during the last 10 seasons, been on NCAA probation twice, dropped nine of 10 to arch-rival Tennessee and had four different coaches in the last five years...

One thing Paul Bryant always stressed and preached to his players was a simple rule, but it's worth repeating. "No matter what happens," he would say, "show your class."

Lately, Alabama officials seem to have thrown that basic principle out the window.

You tell 'em, Paul.

Meanwhile, the oldest known painting of Antarctica has been found. No need to worry, though. The University of Alabama doesn't hold the trademark.
